Yet Another Facebook Story: Work @Home FTW

Because I’m open to new things, I clicked the sidebar ad on my Facebook Profile page. You might know the one. It says “Work for Google at Home. Learn how I make over $4000 a month part-time at home.” The visual is a wad of cash.
Anyway, if you click through to the campaign’s microsite,, you’ll be encouraged to order a book of magic tricks from Emillionaire Institute to see how it’s all done.
I wonder how Google feels about the use of their brand in this charade.

About David Burn

Co-founder and editor of AdPulp. I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. I worked for seven agencies in five states before launching my own practice in 2009. Today, I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.


  1. This appears to be a Pyramid-style scam. It will probably collapse soon, but not until thousands of victims (the ones doing the advertising) have been ripped off to the tune of thousands by the dastards behind the scheme.

  2. I was conned out of 139 GBP on by this site, thankfully a member of my family works for the Fraud dept. so this being resolved quickly and are close to nailing the culprits.
